What significance do Filegroups have on Indexes

Hi,

I'm a newbie in this SQL Server development. I have a database with 7
tables that are linked to each other and have created clustered index
for the primary keys and non-clustered index for the secondary keys.

All my indexes are on the same filegroup, what is the effect of this
becuase the application that I'm using runs very slow during
processing.

PS: My tables have a grown rate of about 10 000 records a day.

Hi

It is probably not the fact they are in filegroups that makes your
application slow. In general filegroups will only improve performance the
files are located on different disks/controllers. They can also help
backups/restores.

You should look at if the indexes need reindexing/defragmenting and if your
statistics are upto date. Regular maintenance of your database should
include updating these.

Check out the sections "Administering SQL Server"
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...asp?frame=true
and "Creating and Maintaining Databases"
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...asp?frame=true
in Books online.
